Bikes in School!

Today we brought our bikes and scooters into school. While we were in our French lesson, Miss Ash and Mrs Greenland went outside and drew a road system with chalk onto the playground. There were T-junctions, zebra crossings and roundabouts. They put out lots of road signs to help us find our way and stay safe. After French, we all went into the playground and worked in groups taking it in turns to sketch our bikes, to carry out a bike-check and to ride around on the roads. We learnt loads about road signs, about the details on our bikes (we had to look very carefully as we sketched) and about how to ride safely and confidently. But most importantly, we had wonderful fun!

Venn Diagrams in Maths

Today our Maths lesson was about sorting data on a Venn diagram. We worked in pairs and below is an example showing Rhys and Jesse's work. Thanks to BEAM for a great activity idea.

Then Miss Ash had an email from Mr Noble, who teaches Maths in Secondary, saying that his class had made a huge Venn diagram on the playground. He was inviting other classes to add their information. We rushed over with our chalk! Their Venn diagram was more complicated than ours (it had 4 circles) so we spent some time working it out. Then we added our information about what we had for breakfast, by drawing a stick person in the correct place.
Here are some pictures of us working:

Thanks to Mr Noble and his students for including us. We love being in a school where Primary and Secondary can share ideas and learning.

Mystery Music

Listen to this music. What does it make you think of? Why do you think I have chosen to share it with you? What instruments can you hear?

Our recount

We performed this recount of our trip to Toulouse at our assembly today. Lots of people asked if it could go on the blog, so we recited it one last time back in class and took a video. Here it is...

Design Technology - Vehicles

Our D&T project over the next few weeks is all about vehicles. We will be making our own cars, but first we brought in lots of different toy vehicles and made some careful observations. We worked in pairs to look at each vehicle; discussing how each vehicle is used and looking at the number and size of the wheels.

Poetry - Transport poems

We have been sharing some poems that link with our topic on transport. We listened to this poem by Michael Rosen today in our Literacy lesson. It made us laugh.

This is another fun poem by Michael Rosen about travelling to Boxland.
What could be in the box? Would you look inside?

We have been practising our estimation with this great number line tool.
We have been learning to add and subtract using number lines to help and we had a go at this game. Why don't you have a game at home?
